See, earlier, by James Fulford: Disparate Impact: Legal And Political

Last week’s item about jaywalkers in New York City brought in some emails. It referred to complaints that city cops issue jaywalking tickets disproportionately to Sun People, i.e. blacks and Latinos. Sun People are only 55 percent of New Yorkers, but they get 90 percent of tickets for jaywalking. Obviously New York cops are practicing flagrant racial discrimination.

A listener with long experience working in the city’s courtrooms tells me that summonses are only issued to those who run but can be caught in a foot pursuit. So the statistics factor in the obedience of perps and the relative athleticism of perps and cops. Not sure how that plays out.

Another listener notes that the hateful racism on display in the issuance of jaywalking tickets is also seen in summonses for fare evasion in the city subway system. New York State’s Attorney General (Letitia James, right) a black female radical, wants police to stop enforcing the law on fare-beating.

Meanwhile there have been ructions in one of the city’s school districts. The New York City Schools Chancellor is another far-left radical, a Gringo-hating Latino supremacist named Richard Carranza. (Right. )Noticing that students being disciplined for misbehavior in city schools were disproportionately Sun People, Carranza [Tweet him] has ordered principals to stop traditional disciplinary procedures in favor of “restorative justice.”

“Restorative justice” is the name of a trendy, feminized approach to dealing with misbehavior, not just in schools but in any kind of institutionalized setting—courts and prisons, for example. The main idea: instead of the misbehaving person being slapped with some penalty, they sit around in a group with their victim, witnesses to the misbehavior, authority figures, and psychologists, and everyone talks at length about their feelings (wo wo wo feelings).

The usefulness of “restorative justice” has not stood up to rigorous research [The promise of ‘restorative justice’ starts to falter under rigorous research,. by Jill Barshay, Hechinger Report, May 6, 2019] And by comparison with traditional punitive approaches it wastes enormous amounts of everyone’s time. But Progressives love it anyway.

New York City public-school parents…not so much. When Chancellor Carranza held a town hall meeting at a New York middle school on Thursday last, he was jeered off the stage by parents furious at the lack of discipline in their kids’ schools:

After several unsuccessful attempts to quiet the crowd, Carranza rose and exited the stage as the hooting continued.

Outraged parents jeer DOE head Richard Carranza off the stage at Queens town hall meeting, by Selim Algar, NY Post, January 17, 2020

The common thread to all these stories: “Disparate Impact.” If Sun People are disproportionately being given tickets for jaywalking, or subway fare-beating, or Sun People schoolkids are being disproportionately punished for misbehavior, our ruling ideology insists that the only possible explanation can be malice on the part of Ice People—that’s whites and Asians—towards Sun People.

The malice might be conscious or unconscious; but it is what causes the disproportion in punishments.

This is all in accord with the larger notion of Disparate Impact. Wherever there is a disproportion of Sun People or other favored groups suffering negative outcomes in any situation—mortgage lending, for example—a wrong has been done, and action must be taken to right that wrong.

Disparate Impact Theory is a key principle in our ruling ideology. It has the authority of, for example, the U.S. Supreme Court [U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Fair Housing Disparate Impact Principle, National Low Income Housing Coalition, June 29, 2015]. You might think that these disproportions could possibly be caused by Sun People actually jaywalking, turnstile-jumping, or acting up in class more than Ice People.

But if you do think that, you’d be wise to keep quiet about it. That’s crimethink.

And please note that it’s still crimethink even if you are a race denialist. Speaking as a race realist, I assume that Sun People do misbehave more than Ice People, and that the reasons are ultimately biological. But you can disagree with me on that bit about reasons and still be a thought criminal, though. If you think that Sun People truly do misbehave more, but for non-biological reasons, you’re still a thought criminal.

Heather Mac Donald, for example, who has written extensively and scathingly about Disparate Impact Theory is not a race realist. She’s a race denialist. She puts the high levels of misbehavior among Sun People down to “family dysfunction and lack of socialization.” [Back to Discipline |Disparate impact reflects disparate reality, by Heather Mac Donald, City Journal, December 19, 2018.]

That doesn’t get her off the hook. Heather is a thought criminal anyway: ask any Progressive. [Suspensions for College Students Who Thwarted Free Speech | Claremont McKenna punished multiple campus activists who shut down an event featuring a pro-police speaker—but were those punishments justified?, by Conor Friedersdorf, The Atlantic, July 19, 2017]

Disparate Impact Theory is one of the stupidest and least defensible components of our ruling ideology. In its application to mortgage lending, where lenders were forced to abandon rational credit standards so that Sun People applicants were not disproportionately rejected for home loans, it contributed mightily to the housing bust and the subsequent great recession of twelve years ago.

When some legal scholar is coming up for consideration as a Supreme Court justice, the phrase “litmus test” is usually heard at some point, most likely in relation to the abortion issue. Here would be my litmus test question for someone in that position: “What part, if any, do you think the notion of Disparate Impact should play in our nation’s jurisprudence?”

FOOTNOTE: Looking up that quote from Heather Mac Donald, I got to reading some of her other pieces at the City Journal website. She’s a very good writer; and her pieces are terrifically well-researched.

Here’s an article Heather posted last September : False Testimony | Sworn statements at a recent congressional hearing on policing veered sharply from the truth: here are the facts, September 26, 2019. The House Judiciary Committee had held a hearing on the policing of black neighborhoods. Heather has written a book with the title Are Cops Racist? So, reasonably enough, she was invited to address the Committee, one of the two witnesses called by the Republican minority on the Committee.(Watch her testimony here or below, at 1:33: 04.)

It was the penultimate paragraph of Heather’s article that got my attention::

The Republicans on the committee failed to push back against this narrative of systemic police bias … The only way to dislodge the “endemic racism” argument is to challenge its factual basis directly. I was the only witness at the hearing with the ability to do so, but the Republicans asked me not one question. This is not a matter of personal ego but rather of the public battle of ideas.

That, it seems to me, goes right to the heart of the utter uselessness of the Republican Party. In what Heather calls “the public battle of ideas,” when hostilities get anywhere near the subject of race, Republicans throw down their weapons and scamper from the field as fast as they can scamper.

What gutless cowards Republicans are!

John Derbyshire [email him] writes an incredible amount on all sorts of subjects for all kinds of outlets. (This no longer includes National Review, whose editors had some kind of tantrum and fired him.) He is the author of We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism and several other books. He has had two books published by VDARE.com com: FROM THE DISSIDENT RIGHT (also available in Kindle) and FROM THE DISSIDENT RIGHT II: ESSAYS 2013.

    As a race denialist, Heather MacDonald “puts the high levels of misbehavior among sun people,” especially blacks -from jaywalking, turnstyle jumping, and acting up in school” to aggravated assaults, muggings, armed robbery, rapes and geng-rapes, gang-shootings, murder, etc.- “down to ‘family dysfuction and lack of socialization’.”

    The confusion and inversion of cause and effect. To what degree is “family dysfunction and lack of socialization” a corollary of race and intrinsic racial group differences? By “family dysfunction and lack of socialization,” she’s referring, essentially, to female-headed familes, created and sustained by a welfare system that fosters illegitimacy, and fatherless children, especially males.

    If the welfare system were abolished or reformed and every inner-city black child, magically and miraculously, were given a Thomas Sowell, Larry Elder, David Clarke, Allan West, etc., as a father, things would improve significantly, though not as dramatically as the fathers-as-panacea advocates, black and white, believe. Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown had fathers in the home and they were still criminals and delinquents. All children have fathers. In reality as opposed to theory, the problem is that inner-city black children, especially the males, have fathers, the criminals, drug-addicts, and low-IQ low-lives from which they inherited thir low intelligence, high levels of testosterone, salaciousness, and resultant disposition for violence and criminality, predation and promiscuity.

    Is Heather MacDonald a race denialist or does she pretend to be a race denialist for obvious reasons. She doesn’t want to suffer the fate of Jared Taylor, John Derbyshire, Jason Richwine, and other race realists. I suspect that someone as honest and realistic as Heather is a cryptic race realist, but if “came of out of the closet,” publicly, she’d not only be vilified as a “racist” by leftists and “progressives” but also denounced, deplatformed, and defenestrated by Republicsns and the mainstream conservative establishment.

    As if Derb’s brief essay isn’t depressing/desfeatist enough, I’m forced to point out that – insofar as Shitlib/Socialist America, aka justplain America (let’s stop kidding ourselves, ok?) is concerned – Conor Fredersdorf is what now passes for a “conservative”.

    Derb should have had the nerve to instead end this essay with “better by far a ‘neo-Nazi’ than a gutless Republican coward”…..particularly as “neo-Nazi” is now nothing more than Orwellian English for traditional conservative….but he probably understands that the kinder, gentler Bolsheviks now in charge of the Western democracies are dedicated to ensuring that the children of unapologetic whites will be made to endure one purity test after another, and he has grown children to shield from the commissars.

    To what degree is “family dysfunction and lack of socialization” a corollary of race and intrinsic racial group differences? By “family dysfunction and lack of socialization,” she’s referring, essentially, to female-headed familes, created and sustained by a welfare system that fosters illegitimacy, and fatherless children, especially males.

    The last bit of that paragraph shows that you’re heading towards the right track[1]: rather than thinking about race and what-not, it might be worth thinking about the dynamics of economic precarity.

    a welfare system that fosters illegitimacy, and fatherless children, especially males

    That’s close to a useful statement, although it misses the point a bit.

    The welfare system subsidises reproduction by people for whom a small expected increase in the household budget has a high marginal utility – i.e., the bottom 2 income quintiles.

    Worse, it adversely selects within those poor households: it ‘bites’ in that part of the bottom two quintiles that are incapable of forming unbiased expectations of the net effect on the budget that results from squirting out a new welfare-subsidised kiddie.

    Think about the rational response of a poorly-educated, unskilled person given the incentives generated by such a system.

    Once you do that, it’s clear that focusing on race misses more than half the picture.

    Rural trailer park white trash have rates of welfare dependency that are on a par with poor urban blacks – and while trailer-park white trash are a small proportion of the white population, in absolute numbers there’s waaaaay more trailer park white trash than are poor urban blacks.

    There is less of a violence arms race in Trailer Park Wonderland – although that will almost certainly change once people start fighting over the profits to be had from (ahem) entrepreneurial responses to crackdowns on opioid prescription rates.

    And the system that incentivises Shaquanda to squirt out another urban dummy, also incentivises Dakota to squirt out a corresponding rural dummy. And neither Tyrone nor Bobby-Billy-Bob are sticking around to raise they kid.

    Don’t get me wrong: the US has severe, and worsening, urban blight. And since blacks are the most visible poor demographic in US urban centres, they’re in the cause-effect vortex of shit – but it’s mostly because that’s where they are, as opposed to being the causa causans.

    It’s not hugely different to the same phenomenon elsewhere in the West – although it is more advanced in the US because US urban centres have become more dilapidated due to a longer period of institutional neglect. In places like Australia and New Zealand (and to a lesser extent, England) it’s obviously not due to people of African descent.

    It also almost doesn’t matter anymore – the demographic damage has been accumulating for three generations, and its effects are already visible above the median irrespective of race.

    Consider that each newly squirted addition to the bottom 4 quintiles of the cognitive herd is a waste of resources. That’s an objectively verifiable fact: at best people in the bottom 4 cognitive quintiles might grow up to be a well-behaved drone, but they will cost more in government services than they pay in taxes. Every new dummy is a net lifetime drain on the public finances, and TFR is inversely correlated with income, IQ and education.

    So there’s that.

    .

    [1] Mentioning ‘illegitimacy’ degrades it though: smart people realise that marriage is a dead social institution walking, since it is based on the anachronistic, forelock-tugging, primitive, stupid notion that people need state or religious licensure in order to ‘legitimise’ reproduction.

    Besides, plenty of “legitimate” kiddies live in ‘serial stepdad’ households, given that people tend to stay married for precisely as long as they feel like: it is drawing a long bow to claim that any male adult presence in the household is better than none when you think a bit harder about the average bloke.

  6. Derbyshire, your brown Chinese woman is a Sun People. There are 3 racial groups: Caucasoids, Mongoloids and Negroids. Monogoloids and Negroids are Sun People. Hispanics can be any of the three. In New York Hispanics are mostly Puerto Rican and Dominican Republican – black. Illegal Chinese cause many problems in NYC and have a disparate impact. You need to start writing about this.

    “…a Gringo-hating Latino supremacist named Richard Carranza.” To paraphrase the Bible, worry about the chopsticks in your eyes before you criticize the toothpicks in someone else’s eyes. You have written that Asians are smarter than whites. They are not and had nothing to do with the development of Western civilization. You’re a self-hating, degenerate Western male. https://www.unz.com/jderbyshire/of-course-harvard-discriminates-against-asians/ Derbyshire scribbled in this article that whites cannot be made smart like Asians. That’s chutzpah.

    “What gutless cowards Republicans are!” You’re pointing a finger again. And you know what this means. Four fingers are pointing back at you. The pot is calling the kettle black. Instead of blaming others of cowardice, why don’t you do something brave – like moving yourself and your Chinese family to China. You have written that these problems don’t exist in China. Why get your Depends in a bunch when you can live a peaceful life in China and your Chinese family will finally be in the country they were meant to be.

    John Derbyshire has been pushing for this Asian-White alliance for a long time. I was confused by this at first but was very shortly after made aware of his yellow fever.

    Although Asians behave well, I have a rather strong hunch that they do not actually like Whites. They are just smarter in the way they take revenge.

    John D can’t be blamed on the end, the West has become very bad for the Western male and as such it is only natural some choose to pro-create with Chinese, as their women have not been brainwashed.

    It is kind of unnerving seeing Derbyshire shilling for Asians this hard though. I suppose he has realised that his children are now Asian and not White, I have also read his daughter has repudiated her father’s ‘racism’. I suppose she saw the hypocrisy of this so-called race realist.

    Asians are very different from Whites.

    True, but they’re more different from blacks than they are from whites, by just about any standard you care to apply. Since Asians are also a much smaller minority in the US than are blacks, it makes sense to lump them in with whites if you’re going to divide the population into two groups for the purposes of discussion.

    Certainly in the context of this post it makes sense. Asians and whites, as a group, are both negatively impacted by the application of Disparate Impact, while blacks are helped.

    My experience with white trash is that they only have two or three kids and then the government stampedes after the ass of Cletus Olen Toole so hard to get his child support check that he stops getting Bobby Jo pregnant every time he hits the meth pipe or the Rockin Rodeo bar closes.

    You’re British so of course your government has more generosity as does Australia’s, but America really has done everything to discourage poor whites from reproducing.

    Similarly, most white trash girls become embittered from their life of pure squalidness after the second kid age 20 or so.

    As for Opoids, when these become illegal Friends of Frank Sinatra over in Jersey will seize a hold on the market or maybe Mexicans will like they did with Meth.

    But white trash in the trailer parks won’t resort to brutal organized crime. They’re no good at it. They cannot compete with the Italians or Mexicans. Fundamentally, they’re too disorganized for organized crime.

    I assume you’re English so your urban white underclass is permanently entrenched. But in the US poor whites are rural and this in itself prevents them from being much of a threat because they would have to walk five miles just to menace anyone. There’s nobody to mug in a trailer park because everyone is broke.

    The whites that once made American cities dangerous in the Boardwalk Empire era-the Irish, the Italians, the Slavs, the Jews-have now moved to the suburbs and out of poverty.

    Voilà 😀

    The only experience you have with white trash is with yourself and your Asian family. You’re a degenerate, cucked Western male who married Asian poontang and squirted out future Asian sex workers. At least you left the West, unlike Derbyshire.

    Why do you care what happens in the West? Worry about the shithole Asian country of your Asian family.

    “Derb is spoofing Leonard Jeffries.” Either Derbyshire is spoofing Jeffries with Monty Pythonesque humor, or he refuses to deal with the reality of the Sun People in his home.

    His brown, Chinese woman is a Sun People. His Chinese offspring are Sun People. His Chinese daughter likes the African branch of the Sun People. His Chinese family is anti-white. This must make for some pretty weird scenes when he’s at home with them.

    Here’s an article he wrote about Harry: https://vdare.com/posts/prince-harry-s-pathological-domestication

    Here’s an article where Derbyshire scribbles about jaywalking and disparate impact: https://vdare.com/posts/jaywalking-and-race-disparate-enforcement-or-disparate-lawbreaking

    This atheist (who never understood Christianity when he lived in England) wails to the Lord asking how much longer we have to wait for justice.

    I’m still sticking with degeneracy, but I may have to change it to insanity.

    The white trash I was around would not have been able to find the Asian country I live on the map. Much less visit. They don’t travel.

    You cannot travel or find employment in Asia if you are white trash. You don’t go very far when you marry too young, have kids too young, fail to attain a college degree and require the state to support you.

    Degenerate white trash get hooked on drugs, wrack up a series of petty criminal charges and cannot leave the state without their parole officer’s permission.

    The way you toss around terms like “Cuck” I’ve come to believe you are yet another young man pretending to be an older woman.

    In which case you have never traveled and don’t know anything about Asia or any other country overseas. You’re writing about a subject you know very little about because you have not traveled.

    I have lived, studied and traveled in Europe and speak, read and write three European languages.

    My sister has traveled to China, Hong Kong and Singapore for business. These are Chinese countries with different types of governments. The one thing they had in common is the Chinese people. She said the Chinese are stupid, dirty and rude.

    Your low IQ Asian trashy spawn will be barely literate. Worry about your genetic waste and leave the West alone.

    You’re a Slav yourself as you’ve state. Probably Polish, though you were not specific.

    Eastern Europeans carry significant degrees of Asian genes.

    Look at Charles Bronson.

    You’re insane. Eastern Europeans do not have Asian genes. You’re just trying to justify your degeneracy. Yours is a typical response from Western males who get involved with Asian females. Just because you’ve destroyed your genetic inheritance, it doesn’t mean others will be stupid like you.

    You left the West and married an Asian. Mind your own business and keep an eye on your Asian daughters.

    Everyone from Lithuanian to Serbia has Asian mitochondrial DNA. This is scientifically proven. Tartar and Hun.

    Slavs are Genghis’s descended from “Yellow Hordes”.

    One need only look at Charles Bronson or Jack Palance to see the degree to which Asiatic genes are present in Eastern Europeans.

    If we can’t get net productivity out of those groups then we are doing something wrong as a society.

    Yes the US is “doing something wrong as a society” and has been since about 1971, when Griggs versus Duke Power came into force and caused horrendous misapplication of resources to occur ever since.

    Looking at the Wikipedia page of this Charles Bronson figure, it says he had Tatar ancestry.
